  1. Farewell

    FT: Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth

    We're going to leave it there this evening.

    A composed performance for Bournemouth who keep their run going. Coventry looked good at the break, but slip to a second defeat of the season.

    We'll be back tomorrow when there's a feast of football to get stuck into across the English Football League.

    For now, thanks for joining us.


    Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth

    And thus ends a wet and windy match at St Andrew's.

    Bournemouth take the three points and maintain their unbeaten start in the Championship courtesy of Dan Gosling's double.

    Coventry, who saw Gustavo Hamer sent off, slip to a second defeat in four matches.


    Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth

    Dan Gosling comes off, two goals to his name, and is replaced by Nnamdi Ofoborh.

    Four minutes added on.

  4. Post update

    Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth

    Adam Smith tees up Jack Simpson to put a cross in for Bournemouth as they once again break into the Coventry box.

    The hosts just about clear it away as the ball pinballs around their half of the field.

    Not long to go now.


    Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth

    A final change from the hosts as Coventry boss Mark Robins removes Ryan Giles for Sam McCallum.

    A final roll of the dice.

    Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth

    Jack Simpson replaces Diego Rico as Bournemouth make their second change of the match.

    Time is ticking down if Coventry are to find the necessary goals to find an unlikely point, here.

  8. Post update

    Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth

    Coventry v Bournemouth

    There's been few chances in the past 10 minutes or so and the red card has sort of killed off the game a bit.

    Bournemouth look comfortable with their lead as the clock ticks down.

    Is there unbeaten league start going to continue?


    Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth

    Phillip Billing replaces Lewis Cook in Bournemouth's first change of the match.

    Surely a case of seeing this one out now with their one-man advantage.

    I like this.

    Hey! This isn't food-based!

    #bbcefl for more positivity, folks.


    Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth

    Dan Gosling adds to his two goals this evening with a yellow card after a clumsy challenge on Coventry's Callum O'Hare.

    Referee Jarred Gillett is having a busy evening!


    Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth

    Coventry send their free-kick into the box and Callum O'Hare works onto Dominic Hyam's flick on and hits the outside of the post.

    Inches away from going in, that one.


    Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth

    Having seen a replay, it looks like Bournemouth's Steve Cook started all that kerfuffle by marching in on Gustavo Hamer straight after Adam Smith went in with the tackle on Fankaty Dabo.

    Hamer seems to slap his face straight after which explains why he was sent off but Steve Cook also goes into the book for his trouble.

  14. RED CARD (Gustavo Hamer)

    Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth

    Red card

    Adam Smith goes into the book for a challenge on Fankaty Dabo and the Coventry man does not like that.

    There's some pushing and shoving in the aftermath and Gustavo Hamer is sent off for his reaction.

    3-1 down and now playing with 10 men. Not going Coventry's way tonight.

  15. Post update

    Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth

    Sam Surridge is having a fine game having started his first league game for Bournemouth tonight.

    He turns and runs into the box and strikes low at the left-hand post but Coventry keeper Marko Marosi does well to tip it away.

  16. Post update

    Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth


    Absolutely no one:

    Every player on the pitch at some point tonight: Ahhhh I'm gonna batter a long ball 50 yards instead of passing to the teammate stood next to me.

  17. GOAL: Coventry 1-3 Bournemouth

    Dan Gosling


    Kind of at a loss at how to describe just how good of a goal Dan Gosling's just scored.

    The Bournemouth midfielder scores his second of the match in some style as he strikes from about 25 yards out.

    The way the ball travelled was mesmerising. Some proper power on that, I tell ya.

  18. Post update

    Coventry 1-2 Bournemouth

    Callum McFadzean pings a ball across field to Fankaty Dabo but his Coventry teammate can't quite keep it in play.

    McFadzean has...dare I say it...hit that too well.

    That is indeed a food-based footballer pun.

    Mark Towlson: Hyam and eggs

    Also acceptable.

    Keep sending you food-based football puns, folks. #bbcefl

  20. Post update

    Coventry 1-2 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth are hungry for more here and win a succession of corners as they keep Coventry under pressure.

    Sam Surridge forces a tremendous save from Sky Blues keeper Marko Marosi with a neck-busting header.

    Good stuff from the Cherries.
